We have just returned from a 5-day Bay of Islands trip with NZSKA and are still savouring the experience. The trip was excellent from beginning to end: exquisite bays, a beautiful base campground, delicious food, wonderful energy, and to top it all an exceptionally competent and skilled guide — Magnus— whose knowledge of the ocean bays, natural history, and local culture are extraordinary!
He generates wonderful energy and is highly tuned to the needs of the group, without any fuss whatsoever. The food was excellent, and our dietary restrictions accommodated.
This is an excellent workout for body and soul. Don’t hesitate to signup with NZSKA if you are thinking of a Bay of Islands trip. We are very well-travelled and this is one of the best!
